Game Introduction

The player must score a touchdown in the time allotted to go from high school and college ball all the way to the Pros and the Super Bowl.

Each level starts on the kick-off with the player carrying the ball as far up the field as possible before being tackled. Then, as the quarterback, you can either run or pass the ball to a receiver. An intercepted pass earns a penalty of 20 yards. Running out of bounds stops the clock. Extra points after touchdowns can either be kicked or run into the end zone.

More detailed information on 10-Yard Fight and game play can be found here: http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=6761

To qualify for MGL points you will need to have submitted a score by stating your score in the subject line of your message, and posting a screenshot in this thread. Submit scores as many times as you like, please post a new message for each new score. 10-Yard Fight comp closes Sunday 7PM November 4th.

Awwwww yeaaaaaaa :D

I better actually play this one and submit a score seeing as it's my nomination.

Certain it wont be to everyone's tastes as it's very different from your average shooter,platformer, maze.

youtube videos and inp files wont help you either, another reason I like this for MGL. Nominated it almost every MGL since I started playing, so I'm pretty chuffed to see it finally come up.

Once again I've seen a game selection, reacted due to struggling at it in the past and after a few games realized what I was doing wrong.

Until 15 minutes ago my best score was around 3,000. Never scored a touchdown before. Just one tiny little thing I hadn't picked up on before made all the difference. And no I can't say what it was as that would be giving out tips which upsets people in the first week.

Not as bad as I first thought.

Gave this a very quick bash on the keyboard and it's not good, really think you need a joystick to play this one.

Anyone know of a cheap ready built arcade joystick I can use on my laptop? Need to fix up my Mame cab, but can't see that happening in the next 2 weeks :(

Edit: Actually, I should dig out my Logitech Gamepad and see if that's any better :) Maybe tomorrow

I have played this game quite a bit - I'm okay at it, not great - there is one aspect of this game where I think a joystick will be easier.

Only had one quick game like I said, so I'll give it another go on the keyboard but until I try with a joystick I guess I can't say 100% if a joystick is easier on this one.

Good stuff. I hope you enjoy getting into it over two weeks, learning it's secrets, as there are quite a number of little things about this game. It seems all chaos at first and pretty random.

had a quick bash just to get a score up I am rusty, didn't get past college team. I'm not great at this game either but enjoy the challenge and getting further past the teams.

I have one pretty cool secret I know of for this game, which I'll hold until the 2nd week unless someone finds it out first :) just something I found out while playing and trying some things over the years. I can't find it talked about on the interwebs either which is strange :)

I hope this is as enjoyable as Super Basketball which we got back in MGL.. 12? I never played many of the sports titles back in the day, my local arcades and shops didn't have any. I remember Punch Out at Grundys back in the 80s but other than that no sports title ever took much of my money until SuperStars Baseball showed up mid-90s. Will be loading up the ROM tonight and having a bash :)

Good stuff. They are getting harder to get my hands on recently. Looks like the youngens are buying up all consoles and looks like GC is the next in line.

And yes John I have played this a few times :) I don't normally play the league but when I saw 10 Yard i had to jump in. I am hoping to beat my hi score which is a lot higher than that. Once thing about 10 Yard it can throw you some really crap games. Similar to DK.

totally - sometimes you can get real easy setups where making 10 yards is a breeze, then you can get 4 setups in a row where even making a few yards is bloody hard... the unpredictability is part of the charm.

Thats odd ? You cant have got over the line as your dude will celebrate, you will get awarded points (5000, 6000, 7000 and so on) and you will then go to the bonus stage (the kick at goal.)

After that the 2nd half starts, then score another touchdown and you will get to see the cheerleaders panties, which is always good :D

Kicking goals is easy when you know how - I'll post some tips on Sunday if you haven't worked out how to kick a goal at every attempt. To kick the ball you just use the pass forward button which is Button 2 in the Mame setup.

You'll now be in the 2nd Half of High School league, so that game is pretty much just repeating from now on - the opposition is just harder, you get less time per half and you gradually receive the ball further & further back from their kick off.

Sometimes on the radar shot on the right side it shows that you have broken the 10yard line however you are still just short of making the 10yard down which is why it would possibly same game over when you think you've made the required yards.

That the issue. Your time ran out. Top Right corner is the timer. When it hits zero game over. You get more time by making 10 yards. Don't make 10 yards in a play the time you used up you don't get back.

I must have gone on to the second half and not scored again, though it didnt seem that long.

So everytime you score you go on to the next half/team right?


Either way I finally got past the hischool kids, I can see the attraction now that I'm getting half a clue but I'm still heading back to bosconian for a bit :)

Yup. Score a touchdown and that's the end of the half.

I'd like to know people's best yardage in a single run. I've never scored from a kickoff reception, but got close to the line.

You really need to steer your blockers to take out the defense for maximum yardage. This applies always. Don't be afraid to change direction quickly too, as it sometimes confuses the defense AI, and you can squeeze out a few more yards.

Now that's not much tipping, so no biggie, but just to help out peeps a bit that may have never played this ;)

Brad
24th October 2012, 01:18 PM

Brad

I got down to about the 12 yard line playing the high school kiddies :D Brad is right, you miss out on so many points like this. If I've got a chance to get to the 12 yard line V the Pro team I'll take it though :lol

Haven't beaten my score from day 2 yet :realmad: Getting stuck on the College team way too often so getting no practice taking on the pros.

MonoJoker
24th October 2012, 02:09 PM
Leeching is actually quite possible in this game - unfortunately - because once you get the hang of making first downs you can make a few, then throw an intercept and you get that chance to keep going making 1st downs (in theory) forever. I can't help myself though I'm so keen to score from the kick return LOL. And now that I've made College I just have to see how fast they are on Super or whatever is next...

Brad

Yeah agree, on the easier levels when you have more time on the clock, it's better to start from further back and just make 10 yards a time, and get as many 1000 points as you can.

I wouldn't call that leeching though. It's not a continual/endless exploit for points

There is a definite leech for points though in this game ;) it doesn't always work though, and you don't get much opportunity to try and pull it off. It's not worth a lot extra either, probably only 2-3k per team, depending on how good you are :D

After College are the Pros. Next is Super Pro, and they are fast but it's not their speed, it's the fact your clock starts at 15 seconds that is the killer.

It's not really a crap game, you do need some hints to get a half decent score in it though - There is some stuff that helps you get a better score that isn't apparent from the attract screens so I'll post some of my tips this weekend if Jammasized doesn't do it first and hopefully you'll enjoy this game a bit more.

The game does get bloody hard, but it's always been a game where I felt I got my fair share of entertainment for my 20 cents BITD.

Yeah I worked that out. It hasn't helped. I'll need something that makes a far more significant improvement.

If I remember tomorrow arvo, I'll see if I can do a live stream and save the video of me doing the first & second half of the High School.

You could also possibly try looking for a YouTube vid though the quick search I just did showed a lot of console ports of the game, the only arcade version I saw the guy had the cheats turned on which doesn't help.

Pretty much in the high school, you should be able to score without even throwing a forward pass.. Just use your quarterback to run up the guts between the blockers and use the joystick waggle in one on ones, you should either make first down on your first attempt or second attempt at worst.

Your receiver that runs up the field for the pass... you know you can press the forward pass button when he is initially running across the screen? you don't have to let him run all the way to the far left.

So try something like - if there are defenders (behind the blockers) on the right - send your receiver up to the right - then when your quarterback receives the ball - throw sideways to the left and then just run that guy straight up.

Hope some of that helps - it's very hard to explain without writing a major novel. So much easier in the old days when you could just watch someone else before putting your 20 cents in :D

ED_209
29th October 2012, 09:25 PM
What you're describing sounds like what I've seen in a couple of youtube videos but the reality of playing it has been very different. Absolutely no chance of just running straight up - the guys chasing me are much faster and catch up immediately. Doing this doesn't often get me past the blockers. If I do get past, the rest are straight on me and shaking them off doesn't work for long. Same thing with the guys on the left and right. That ball must weigh a tonne cos everybody else seems quite agile.

As for a forward pass, is that just random luck? I try to throw it when Ive got a clear line to my receiver but the other team seems to then have time to push my players to the ground and intercept or even to run around from behind my receiver and intercept right in front of him.

Brad
29th October 2012, 09:52 PM
It's more about timing than anything. Make you guy in the first pass run ahead at a spot furthest from all the backline defenders. When you go to throw a forward pass at him you have to time it so that the defending players have virtually run in front of the path the ball will take.

Very hard to describe without seeing it though. Sometimes there is no real option to pass forward and you have to run it so you send your runner to take out one of the defenders on the side you'll actually run too.

Cheers,
Brad

I think it's brilliant this game has brought players that 'wouldn't normally play' coming on down and posting a score in mgl. Really gratifying to see :)

Interesting to see players who otherwise usually score well on most games, struggling with such a simple concept like Pass ball, run ball. Make 10 yards :lol

Like Berzerk, Quick pattern analysis is key in this game too. You need to be able to quickly determine right away the best play ie left, right, middle, pass/run, depending on how the defense is setup ie, where the gaps are to exploit.

Also... I know Mikie knows about this ;) kicking 100 yd field goals. After scoring a touchdown and you get the place kick, you can run your kicker right down to just before the 0 yard line, then kick. It will always go over, and you will rack up additional points as your score ticks over as long as you keep running :) sometimes the opposition can run you down though, but most times you should be able to pull it off.

Course this wont help you Ed, until you can score a touchdown against the high school kiddies ;)

Mikie
30th October 2012, 07:58 AM
Yeah I used the 100 yard kick to post my score, noticed you can go up down a couple times at the end just to get another 100 points but make sure you're heading down in the middle when the kick is made. but its too time consuming, my goal is to make it past college ! Lol

If I do get past, the rest are straight on me and shaking them off doesn't work for long. Same thing with the guys on the left and right. That ball must weigh a tonne cos everybody else seems quite agile.

As for a forward pass, is that just random luck? I try to throw it when Ive got a clear line to my receiver but the other team seems to then have time to push my players to the ground and intercept or even to run around from behind my receiver and intercept right in front of him.

I will hopefully be home by 5pm tonight, in which case I'll do a live feed (if my internet/PC works properly without too much stuffing around) and leave the video on my livestream account - www.livestream.com/MrBumpNJump - hopefully this will give you some idea and some hopes of passing the High School round. After that, it's just the same thing, only harder :lol

I honestly can't tell you if I worked out how to play this game on my own or if it was from watching someone else play it. Would be at least 25-30 years since I first played this game in the arcades.

What Brad said about the timing is right, and I can understand why you are getting frustrated.

Anyway, I'll see what I can upload tonight and post back in here when it's up.

Well, thanks for tips guys :D (except Jamma cos you really didn't help so much as take an opportunity to be patronizing :p)

I've managed to score a touchdown and kick a goal now. I think I'll try to get past the high school kids and then throw in the towel. I showed a guy at work what the buttons are and he immediately tripled my hi score. :lol I guess this one's not for me.

Just on the off chance that you're still around, I'm about to live play a game now. I'm by no means as good as some of the guys, but you may pick up some tips.

Will leave the live feed broadcast up there so you or anyone can see my rather crappy game play too : http://www.livestream.com/MrBumpNJump

Edit: Should be up now. Game 1 was probably the better of the games, just mucked around after that. Was getting really tough (for me) defensive setups and giving me little chance to throw too many passes :(

Would really like to see an INP file from the winner of this one to see how they go about beating the game after the College stage. I can normally progress to the Pro's or get close, but have lots of trouble from there on.


2nd Edit: :realmad: Bloody recording came out with nothing but the sound when I switched to full screen. You will have to check out YouTube or INP files I guess, no time for another recording tonight :(

Thanks anyway John. Sure sounded like you were playing well. :lol

This is now hands down, without a doubt the absolute shittest game I've ever played. From graphics to sound to mindblowingly bad gameplay, this takes the cake as the worst piece of crap I've ever forced myself to learn. I'm still trying to beat those goddamn jock high school kids but the more I play, the more I feel I might become that other kid who comes back with a shotgun instead.

Even more gratifying, to nominate a game that ed_209 is so mind blowingly, utterly crap at. The continued bleating gives me strength. Yeah baby :lol

Now where's the other half of your double act ? First down, one to go...

Wow, huge score Brad ! So you were 5 yards away from making the very last team ?

Going to have to give this another go now, in between painting the kitchen this weekend..

Theres a last team? I was in the Super Pro's. Whats after that? I think this is the highest score I've ever gotten but yes 5 yards short. The damn sprite blocks are nasty. I swear is gets worse the higher you get. There was actually a gap between my player and the tackler when I was tackled. The swearing from me was a little extreme at the time :lol

Yeah, I've noticed that too ie on some of the long diving tackles, the tackler sometimes misses you by a good few pixels, yet you can be taken down. WTF rage moments !

Yep there is apparantly 5 levels of difficulty, like a number of games from this era it has the '5 levels' thing going on. I don't know what the last level is called, maybe Super Bowl or something, also wonder if it then loops back to HIgh School ? But you were extremely close to finding out.... would love to know :)

Decided to have one more go. 3 yards short of making it to the final level :(

Best run from the kick off was yesterday, made it to about 4 yards out.

Think that will probably do it for me on this game, just under 7 hours to go - Rob is out of the medals for the first time in living memory, I wonder if he is off practising this game somewhere in a last ditch attempt :D

I'm done with this one. Just can't get my head around this game. Made the pros a few times and failed miserably each time.

Lowest finish ever. Previous worst was 4th on Turtles.

Does the dummy run work?

Still pretty average at this one but had one good run to the third level, I've never had any luck throwing forward straight away or running straight up so usually I'll pass left or right and then either run or go long.

I even started sending my runner up the open side and then going the opposite way and making good yards so now I'm wondering if there's something to that or if its all in my head :).

After a couple of 120k scores during the week, but still not enough to beat Brad's score, sat down 5pm today after a busy weekend with the family, to give this a solid couple of hours. 2nd game in I had a cracker, beat the Super Pros for the first time ever :) From then on the game does a Moon Patrol, ie, it stays at the hardest level and repeats.

I love this game, it's easily in my top 10 alltime games - cause it has no logic, and you can't just learn patterns, enemy positions, and play it like an automaton.

Congrats to 10 yard noobs gave it a decent go, and got decent results - like Rmac, and also were polite and a good sport enough, not to piss and moan for two weeks :lol

Brad

Damn you Jamma! :cry

I dod the same as you. Been a busy weekend. Thought I'd sit down for a quick game. started poorly, cracked 100k and thought okay games going good...just wanted to get past 130,000 and wham, got hit on the line and the dirty damn cheating ref reckons I didn't make the 10 Yards :realmad: Beat my old score by bugger all.

Good game mate. It's a cracker of a game but must be frustrating for the guys who just don't get it.

Cheers,
Brad

Nice score Jamma :)

I had to chuck on the cheat mode DIPs to see what happened at the end, no chance of me making it there :D

Also found out that you score 20,000 for scoring a touchdown from the kick off - I couldn't manage to do it - but it's worth your while doing it if you can.

Only started playing this an hour ago :018: but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Managed a touchdown a few times but not much more than that, it's seems really hard so I'm probably missing something...

Does the dummy run work?



Definitely Tav, so too using your runner/receiver as a blocker up through the initial line to take out a well positioned tackler - gives your q/back time to get around and make the yards running. I run much more than I pass when I play.

I'll have to give the blocker technique a go, it might help me with my quarterback runs which I had pretty much given up on. Nice to see a couple of sports games in the MGL to mix things up, I think it was mentioned before but one of the best things about 10 yards is the variety, I'm sure the patterns get more obvious the more you play but considering how many of the games from the same time had everything happen exactly the same from a given point, like the start of a stage this really does feel like a new game each time you kick off.
